Stayed at these apartments from the 17th to the 24th of September, on checking in we were allocated room 16 on the bottom floor . I was really impressed by the feel of the apartments and the nice gardens around . Our apartment consisted of a bedroom with 2 single beds, large lounge/ living room with table and chairs for 4 people and sofa and arm chair. They had a tv in the room also which showed bbc 1, cebeebies and sky news.The kitchen was very well equipped with oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, kettle, fridge, all lots of utensils and pots, pans and plates ect. Outside the back of our apartment through sliding doors we had a lovely quiet terrace with table, chairs and the back garden with 2 sun loungers and a umbrella, it was so peaceful out there !
The hotel mini market is awful ! Everything is so old and mostly empty, only use in desperation ! The intermarche was about a 10 minute walk and stocks everything ( don't miss the secret room on the right with all the water, beer ect , we were walking around for half hr looking for water not seeing this room ) the quickest way to get there is to walk through the quinitha village !
On Thursday nights they do a BBQ which is 16 € each and includes live music and all you can drink sangria ! This was a lovely night, the food was delicious and the musician was really good ! The pool area was lovely, large swimming pool with so much space around, never a fight for sun beds, there was also a playground by the pool for kidstge hotel offer a shuttle bus to take you into the town but this ends at 5.45pm which is very early, we used this a few times during the day but in evening got taxi which was around 5€ .
The town itself is very quiet with some restaurants along the seafront, as you walk past these you get to the old town which is charming but again mostly just restaurants and touristy shops.
We mostly went to the beach nearest the hotel about 10 minutes walk near the lords bar and it was beautiful !!! You walk past cliffs and down some stair that are in between two cliffs ! Would recommend this one, although there are no sun beds, toilets ect. The next beach along which was just left of this beach had sun beds ect but was a lot busier !
We visited the fiesa, which was really good ! Only takes maximum of 1 hour to walk around and was 10 mins from hotel so best to get a taxi , we got transport included from reception desk and they picked picked us up at 5.20pm and we got there by 5.30pm and we're finished by 6.15pm and we're not getting picked up again until 8pm, I'm sure they arranged it so we had to spend more money there having a drink !
Overall I loved my holiday and these apartments ! Perfect for a relaxing week away ! If I was there longer than a week I would definitely hire a car.
Can't wait to visit again !
